When should I apply?For summer trips, applications are accepted from September through April. Apply as soon as possible in order to maximize time available for fundraising. RIM recommends that all groups apply before Christmas and that individuals apply no later than February 15th. Some applicants may be accepted after May 1st; however, a late-signup surcharge may apply equal to the increased cost of airfare compared to on-time signups.
When is fundraising due?A $95 deposit is due when you accept your spot on the team, and 100% of your trip cost is due 30 days before your start date. After the deposit is submitted, the remaining trip cost will be split into 3 Fundraising goals (~33% due on 3 dates).
When is paperwork due?Most of RIM’s forms can be completed online and are typically due June 1st. The Notarized Consent form must be physically mailed to RIM and is due June 1st for standard trips. All forms and due dates will be listed in your online account.
